The next night was a popular trade in the days of Blanks & Postage. But then, some best-of-'84 lists have this date instead. Perhaps there were transcription errors or confusion between the dates? Maybe some do like this show better and vice versa? The next night was the tape I had and was the show used for 30 Trips. But this show is indeed the better show, the rep coming from the strength of the first set. That said, it's not the top show for '84, and it's AUD-only; which probably explains some of the historicity.
First Set. Jer loses an entire verse in Shakedown but it's played well and jump-starts a hot set. After a solid Greatest Story, Peggy-O is perfectly played. To the note. Mama Tried is a bouncy, intricate version; just excellent. And Big River is big wow. The last three take flight on the excitement as sparks arc to the stage and back atcha. Always nice when going to the half might a swell Might as Well.
Second Set. As exciting as the first set is, the second is average to below average for '84. I dig the '84 arrangement of Touch of Grey but this and Dewiminna are vapid. After iffy verses, the Playing jam makes up for much of the top half of the set. Black Peter is the highlight here. The end jam is just fantastic. Day Job is one of the better versions - for those keeping track.
1st Set: B+
2nd Set: C
Overall = 3½ stars
Peggy-O - note-perfect
Mama Tried - bouncy intricate
Big River - you can't really go wrong from here to the break
Black Peter - solid and then x-factor end jam
SOURCES: It looks like there are a million sources but all come from just 5 tapes, regardless of claims to the contrary. E.G. the oade_sacks_8794 is the same as the
unknown_5304 (except missing the Dewiminna). The senn441_andrewf_94404 is supposedly that source, patched, but if it is it's a couple gens downstream. That source doesn't have the clarity of the mccabe_ladner_33825, though this has narrow freqs and not much image. No, you want the front-of-board billydee_Sellers_Noel_t. What you lose in a little clarity is gained in a much wider freq that's also better at both ends than, say, the Bob Morris (which has the opposite features). This source is also less fatiguing once ears adjust to the missing mids (just pull them up - it's very low in the 1500 to 7000 block). Finally a better source! Ideal might be a matrix of this and the andrewf_94404.
